This is the only pose in which Sitting Bull looks directly at the camera. Without the distractions of props, backdrop, or headdress, we are left to contemplate his calm, weathered face. William Notman & Son, “Sitting Bull,” Montreal, 1885, McCord Museum.

**Warriors are not what you think of as warriors. The warrior is not someone who fights, because no one has the right to take another life. The warrior, for us, is one who sacrifices himself for the good of others. His task is to take care of the elderly, the defenseless, those who cannot provide for themselves, and above all, the children, the future of humanity. —Sitting Bull
Sitting Bull, Lakota Sioux. "It is through this mysterious power that we too have our being, and we therefore yield to our neighbors, even to our animal neighbors, the same right as ourselves to inhabit this vast land."
